Quick Water Requirements
Water Gallons  Quarts
WARNING: Boil kettle capacity (12 gal | 48 qt) exceeded. Volume required: 12.21 gal (48.85 qt). Suggest reducing initial water volume to 12 gal (48 qt) and adding 0.21 gal (0.85 qt) sparge/top-off.    
Heat water added to kettle (equipment estimates 11.45 g | 45.8 qt) 5.24 21  
Mash volume with grains (equipment estimates 11.45 g | 45.8 qt) 5.4 21.6  
Grain absorption losses (steeping) -0.25 -1  
Volume increase from sugar/extract (early additions) 1.01 4  
Pre boil volume (equipment estimates 12.21 g | 48.9 qt) 6 24  
Boil off losses -1.5 -6  
Hops absorption losses (first wort, boil, aroma) -0.11 -0.5  
Post boil volume 10.6 42.4  
Going into fermentor 10.6 42.4  
WARNING: Kettle losses > 2% detected which throw off OG calculation for extract/partial mash recipes in batch target 'fermentor' mode. Solution: Reduce kettle losses, misc losses and hops absorption in equipment profile, OR set batch target to 'kettle' and do a full wort boil. See batch target FAQ.
